Remember to stick with the classic designs. Remember that a colored chandelier will become dated in another 5-10 years. Match the chandelier to the room and the mood you wish to feel rather than with the times.
Choose a chandelier that can hang at the correct height when a table will be centered beneath it. Consider both the chandelier and the room you`re lighting: if the chandelier has bare bulbs, for example, it will need to be hung high enough to avoid glare. At the same time, if you have an 8-foot ceiling, you`ll want to avoid hanging a chandelier too high, unless you want it to look sawed off and stunted.
Glass Chandeliers: The cheapest alternative for crystals is glass, hence, glass is used to make cheap chandeliers. Most of the modern ones have glass shades and domes. By and large, white or yellow coloured glasses are used to make glass ones. But, there are also multi-coloured ones where stained glasses are used.
Chandeliers are ornamental or decorative light fixtures that are used for ceiling lighting. Usually, chandeliers are centerpieces in big halls, churches, public galleries, palaces, hotels, mansions, etc. Common residential houses also have cheap chandeliers in the living room, which are simpler versions of the chandeliers, and are not as extravagant as the ones seen in public and commercial buildings. Chandeliers can be lit up with candle lights, incandescent lights and also by energy saving bulbs.
Candle chandeliers made from metals such as brass, brushed nickel and wrought iron are elegant pieces that resonates the rich history of the past. Antique chandeliers made from metals used to hold candles instead of electric bulbs and have been in existence since the 1400`s, though they were reinvented in differing finishes throughout the centuries. Antique metal candle chandeliers are among the most expensive lighting fixtures today, and may cost up to $60,000 because of their rarity and origin, making them collectible items. If you want to save energy and you have the right budget, you can always opt for an antique metal candle chandelier.
